        Going with dirtydee's Sidewinders, gbu-12s and his litening targeting pod as well as 2 tanks I found on Thingiverse.

        Can't wait to see how she looks with a full load-out!
        Looking great! But still with A-10 nose wheels on the mains... :Scared:

                    • Mid-June is a week away, y'all. Shouldn't be long now.

                      I'm painting tonight but it seems James is going to beat all of us to the finish line with his Callie/3DP special.

                        Alpha. Guessed I missed it but is there an inrunner motor for my F 18 when it comes in?

                              • Cool...Kind of reminds me of the Coast Guard livery on their A-109 helis.

                                  • Made a static air brake for the F-18 yesterday. I ended up printing a big raft on my 3d printer (then cancelling the rest of the print). I heated it up with a hair dryer and it molded in the spot perfectly. Painted it white then put the decal on and cut the excess. This is too much fun!

                                        James, is there anyway to get me a picture of your ESC layed out so I can see the length of the wires on both ends? I ordered the ARF kit and have an extra F-4 ESC but Wayne said he wasn't sure if they were the same, I want to know this ahead of time, thanks.

                                        Your F-18 looks awesome by the way, did you leave it the stock grey?

                                          I can do that later on tonight, just out with the family now. As for this, yes I left the stock grey paint as is. Just got color match from home depot for my inevitable mess ups
